Re: Got my EMT Lisence

Congrats, been several years now when I went through. A lot of tests, finals for class, practical skills, and book knowledge. Then practical State exam, and finally National Boards. At least that was what I had to do. Things are changing quickly in EMS. Gearing towards testing and finding your weaknesses and teaching to get you up to speed. Our state is the trial state for this new style supposedly. Hate to say it, but experience in this field is when you really have to step up to the plate. You are there to make the worst day of their lives better. A lot of responsibility on your part. Glad to see you made the commitment. We need a lot more like you Mike.

Re: Got my EMT Lisence

Congrats!! I have been an EMT for almost 30 yrs and a paramedic for the past 10. If you plan on working in the field do not expect to be compensated adequately for your services. EMS is a thankless profession and the burn out/turn over rate is very high.
